The CPU load depends on the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but it is not so with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a website, the more load shall be produced on the web server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An illustration of what could cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, a lot of people will be browsing it all at once and if they seek out items, the whole database which contains all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful website hosting solution - if the site is popular and the current setup cannot handle the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, which comes with all our cloud hosting packages, you will be able to see incredibly comprehensive data about the system resources your websites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Statistics are routinely generated every 6 hours and you may also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed within a separate section in which you could see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, and so on. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare stats from various months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors has not changed much. That way, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will result in a better performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you need to see detailed stats with regards to the load produced by your websites, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the info there will tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they produce corresponds to the number of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and how much time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, as well as what kinds of processes created the load. The MySQL data will show you how often each database was accessed, plus day-to-day and hourly data for the whole account. With both kinds of statistics, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
